Attention Turns to Specialty Pharmacy.

Dross, David.
Benefits Q; 33(2): 12-15, 2017.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-29782733
Specialty biotech drugs represent 1-2% of prescriptions yet 35% or more of overall pharmacy costs-and are projected to reach 50% of costs over the next three years. In the United States, the cost of these drugs is multiples more than in other countries, and their use presents global competitiveness and philosophical challenges for plan sponsors. This article examines specialty drug trends, discusses balancing access to them versus their impact and reviews the current state of specialty drug management. It provides plan sponsors with key considerations for the future. While specialty biotech management will remain an area of focus affecting benefits budgets for years to come, options are available to help manage their impact and improve outcomes.
